Hartman iEngage Initiative for Campus Leaders:Campus-based Seminar and Jerusalem Study Mission
When? December 28-January 1
Who? Jewish undergraduate students from Princeton, along with participants from Penn, Columbia and Yale. Strongly recommended for students who have been to Israel before.
Cost: All costs of the program, including lodging and meals, are covered by the Initiative.
Participants are responsible for their own flight and travel expenses. Generous scholarship funds are available to subsidize the cost of travel.
Details: The iEngage Initiative seeks to construct a new narrative and language for establishing the covenant between Israel and world Jewry. The project focuses on two core issues: why Jews need a Jewish state today, and whether this state can be a moral and democratic one. Through classes taught by the world-class Hartman faculty and site visits, students will engage in high-level intellectual discourse and exploration of values. In the campus seminar, which consists of three sessions before the trip and three sessions after the trip, participants will be introduced to the issues that will be discussed during the trip and go further in depth upon their return. Participation in the campus seminar is a requirement for participation in the trip.
